I've been playing alot of Skyrim as of late again. I'm not even bothering with the main quest and just doing all the other quests and building Lakeview Manor in the game (I only have the Hearthfire DLC). Also been fooling around in Garry's Mod as of late as well, mainly taking pictures with the models I have in the game. Like this one ---

I recently started playing Banjo-Tooie again. I don't remember it being this hard though. I'm now having problems with trying to use the Egg Aim technique again. But it is really fun. I'm in Witchy World right now.

Dunno about Kojima's involvement. I would say the installments growing ever more action-centric caused the decline of the series. Del Toro seems to know better how to do actual survival horror.

I admit I was sorta skeptical at first, but Kojima on his twitter and on his recent news has shown he had a keen interest in Horror lately after reading about Breaking Bad, Walking Dead (and meeting the cast) and Godzilla.

I played the demo P.T on the PS4 and I loved it. I can honestly say after being a horror game buffoon I never been scared to play a game for a long, long time. Back when I played Resident Evil 2. It was that good.

Finished Okami a couple hours ago. Man, what a great game. Lot of fun and I liked how everything was laid out. But, now that I'm done with it, I don't really know what to do.

Nothing terribly special. They had this same feature in the last game and plenty of fighting games have a sound test that lets you listen to the music nowdays. Though I guess its nice I can use it mobily. What I really want is for a something like Tekken Tag Tournament's Tekken Tunes which would allow me to add my own music to the game.
So check out my Deviant art http://exranion.deviantart.com/ It has ponies, furries, and the link to my tumblr!

I think he means something along the lines of subtley trying to push you to say EA is the worst.

Judging from the description difference between The Wario and Krystal trophy, chances are she's not going to be selectable =(

I find it silly they gave the description of Krystal as "Befitting her name, Krystal was imprisoned in a giant crystal" ... so her parents predicted she would get trapped in a crystal someday? Oh, Nintendo! You so smrt! @[email protected]

Phoenix Games

At least EA has some redeemable titles, like pretty much any pre-Underground NFS, and most of the Battlefield franchise.

I think CD Projeckt Red is the worst EA, they do stuff like think long term and value customer goodwill and loyalty. =P

In answer to the question I think OP Productions takes the award, their game The War Z was one PR disaster after another, not even changing its name in an attempt to escape its Metacritic scores helped them much.

Was playing Hard Time today, and I decided I would try a new strategy to get through my time at Southtown.

So, with some careful planning and a deliberate spam of the 'A' key, I killed every single person in my cell block, wardens and all.

I got off scot free, but it was probably the least fun I ever had playing a game.

Never again :(

My friend told me on Wednesday that someone had "leaked" the final 3 playable characters. It was Shulk, Bowser jr., and the dog from Duck Hunt.

Meh, it sounds funny, but probably not gonna happen.

Well then VIDEO of the 3 showed up later! But nintendo took the video off and made no comment.

Now Shulk has been announced...

Actually, all the characters were "leaked". The ones you didn't mention were Dr Mario, Mr Game and Watch, ROB, Wario and a few others.
